Emotional Intelligence

Thank God, I finally started the long awaited book, “Emotional Intelligence” by Daniel Goleman. I have read the book, “Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence” by the same author, you can find the video review of the book by clicking here , and you can also find other related stuff by clicking here. The book, “Emotional Intelligence” was first published in 1995 and I am reading its 10th edition so there no question doubting the book.

For the major part of today’s reading the author dedicated the text to establish the ground for the aforementioned topic and how the world has responded to it until now. He shared the number of countries around the world which have accepted the theory of emotional intelligence and have included SEL(Social and Emotional Learning) in children’s curriculum as a result.

To put in layman terms (and I am a layman until now since I only have read one tenth of the book) Emotional Intelligence is basically the person’s ability of self-control, the amount of which he is persistent, and his the ability to motivate himself when he is down. Daniel Goleman says that it is one of the most important factors in anybody’s success. I am looking forward to learning a lot from this book. Stay tuned for more updates.
